Revenge Against Death by Linda M. Crate

i gave a vampire
the key to
my heart,
but i didn't warn him
of the fires within me
that will burn
him to ruin;
and i'm not sorry for it
because i have lost so many
to their heinous fangs
so let him perish
sometimes beauty is savage,
and i won't promise 
to be the kindest always;
but he was asking for death
when he took the lives
of those i have always

Linda M. Crate's works have appeared in numerous publications and anthologies both online and in print. She is the author of the novels in the Magic Series and the forthcoming Phoenix Tears. She has always found beauty and depth in things that both know light and darkness.
